I’ve been working on my illustration thesis over the past year – a culmination of 10 works based on a particular theme. My thesis series is called “Marvelous Uncertainty”, it takes a subversive look at the questions we have about our human existence and draws fantastical attention to the importance of maintaining curiosity in our perspectives.
As we get so caught up in our lives that we take our very existence for granted and lose sight of the big picture; we need to free ourselves from the stress that a narrow focus on our daily events can bring. “Marvelous Uncertainty” aims to do just that. The idea is that anything is possible. We don’t have a solid answer to many of humanity’s great questions but it doesn’t end with a period, it ends with a question mark. Because if we don’t know the answer, why can’t any possibility exist? And if we don’t ask the question in the first place, the world must be quite a boring and bleak place.
“Marvelous Uncertainty” brings inquisitiveness and “marvel” into our lives by exploring wondrous possibilities. It explores Philosophical implications of humanity, relating to the fundamental nature of our knowledge, reality and existence. It involves Theoretical implications, the theory and ideas about human existence. It also pertains to the practical, Biological understandings that we have about the living beings that we call “humans”. All of these aspects combine to answer big questions in ways we may not have thought of.
